LAN Cache in a docker container
Simply expose this container on port 80, and point a bunch of domains to this server's IP address, and you get a fully operational LAN cache. Hooray!
Game Download Service URL Reference List
For a list of DNS addresses to override on your DNS server, refer to uklans/cache-domains, or the individual nginx configuration files in this repo.
To build and run, do:
start.sh will make a /data/ directory to store logs and cache data in.
SSL HTTPS Dependency
Warning: some services (eg, when downloading the Origin client) require HTTPS access to the hosts that we are hijacking. To avoid connectivity issues, you will need to run an SNI proxy to enable pass through of HTTPS traffic.
You can build and run the sniproxy container in the
sniproxy directory to achieve this.
cd sniproxy docker build -t sniproxy . docker run --name sniproxy -p 443:443 sniproxy
Start with a clean install of Linux
/data is on a volume (or symlink) with plenty of disk space.
- consider you have a mega-partition mounted to /mnt/storage
- create a symlink for /data
$ sudo ln -s /mnt/storage/lancache/ /data $ df -h /data Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda2 1.7T 69M 1.6T 1% /mnt/storage
Install Docker if not already installed
- curl sudo bash is terrible, but you're trusting my code anyway :)
$ curl -sSL https://get.docker.com | sudo bash
Get this repository
$ git clone https://github.com/OpenSourceLAN/origin-docker.git $ cd origin-docker
Set your max cache size
$ vi nginx.conf
- Find the proxy_cache_path line and udpate the max_size parameter to the maximum amount of disk space you would like your cache to use
Build the containers
Start the cache container
--restart=always, will auto-start after reboot
- security, running your Docker services as root or non root
Start the SNI proxy container (optional, but recommended)
# docker run --name sniproxy -p 443:443 sniproxy
Start the DNS server if you need it
# cd dnsmasq && ./start.sh
